Lithuania has imposed national sanctions on the Russian Federation over its aggression against Ukraine in the Kerch Strait.

“We know that the international organizations have not yet adopted any sanctions against Russian actions. However, we imposed our national sanctions in protest against the attack in the Kerch Strait. We also decided to provide assistance in form of munitions, we send our instructors, military instructors, cyber instructors and humanitarian aid. We also support all civil initiatives of our people to help you in your struggle," President of the Republic of Lithuania Dalia Grybauskaite said at a joint press conference with President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

Petro Poroshenko thanked Lithuania for the imposed national sanctions against those involved in the aggressive actions in the Sea of Azov and called on the international partners to impose sanctions on the Russian Federation over its aggression in the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov: “We urge our international partners to impose tough sanctions in order to stop aggressive attacks of Russia in the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov and ensure freedom of navigation in the region.”

He also stressed that the aggressive actions of Russia, which disregards the Minsk agreements and aggravates the situation in the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov, is a direct threat to European security and a challenge to the entire democratic world.

As reported, President of Lithuania Dalia Grybauskaite makes an official visit to Ukraine on Friday, December 7.
